The permissibility of Christmas decorations in Brussels caused debate among community members, as concerning about their offensiveness towards Muslim residents is being brought into question. La Derniere Heure had written that the decorations should be removed in order to not offend part of the city’s population, and stay neutral concerning religious display. However, Minster of Justice Laurette Onkelinx announced that Christmas trees and other decorations in places such as the Law Courts, would not be removed. According to the minister, the decorated Christmas trees would not be removed, but some other decorations may be removed.
